The problem is with NCurses (even 1.9.0c). Until someone is able to
compile it to run well on NetBSD, you'll have to use normal curses.

NcFTP is up to version 1.9.4 now. You can get the source at
Also, you might want to dump Term in favor of SLiRP. SLiRP is a sort of
combination of TIA and Term - it provides a psudeo-(C)SLIP link, as well
as port redirection. And best of all, it is based on the BSD 4.4
networking code! =) And you do not have to "Termify" software - since
it provides an almost real SLIP connection, software like NcFTP will work
right out of the box.
You can get SLiRP at freedom.wit.com:/misc4/danjo/slirp
